    Rev Blues Mono Premix

    Hello out there folks,
    Sorry if I caused consternation with the closure of the last Rev Blues related thread. Soundclick were having problems with the streaming conversion of my MP3.
    http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page...?bandID=469622
    will take you to an unmixed and basically uneffected version of the song.
    Please comment on any and all aspects that YOU feel need tweaking - panning, levels, EQ, playing, instrumentation etc. All suggestions are welcome.
    I know the bass is too loud - it seems to have been a result of the MP3 compression proccess - as I checked it carefully before uploading - but hey that's not much of a problem.
    The tracking is
    1. BASIC DRUMS mono with some compression
    2. Elec. GUITAR w/some compression to bring up the harmonics
    3. BASS w/a little comp. to even it out.
    4. VOX & SAX (liveroom verb only)
    5. TAMBOURINE
    6. CRASH CYMBAL
    7. RIDE CYMBAL
    8. CELLO 1 lightly EQ to take off some of the top. A string chugging
    9. CELLO 2 G string chugging
    10. CELLO 3 matching bass line
    11. CELLO 4 matching bass line
    Cheers

    Hey rayC,

    I'm listening on a pc and I can hear everything quite clearly!
    I like the chord changes you have used in this tune and I am trying so hard to recall who this tune reminds me of, albeit keeping the originality of rayC.

    I am thinking perhaps the talking style singing reminds me of Dire Straits!......I enjoyed this tune rayC. The speakers I am listening on makes it a hard call to make any judgement on the mix, like I said earlier nothing stands out too much that requires major tweaking from this end!

    Thanx for sharing rayC.

    I love that guitar line for the verses. Also like the guitar sound alot. Vocals im having a bit of a hard time hearing at times. What im getting is for like the "revolution blues" line seems like the guitar takes over a bit. Killer sax playing. Every instrument seems real clear and easy to hear so i don't really have anything to really help with just wanted to say i really liked the song. Sounding good to me man.

    take care

    Cool tune man...I dig the bass sound. It's a very good tone, and seems to drive the tune pretty well. I got no real comments, as for a stripped down version, it's very clean. Sounds are good man...and fun tune. Dire Straits meets....????

    Hey RayC - As you know this has always been one of my favorites of yours. Great lyrics, music, and performance. I would maybe compress or fader-ride the vocals as they are low in a few spots. I kinda like the drier sound on this mix. The only enhancement I would do is maybe try to pan the guitar somehow. My suggestion would be maybe try a stereo chorus or echo effect. There's been some other doubling/delaying tricks posted here that could work too. The cellos sound nice in this version too... Looking forward to other suggestions here and the final remix.....

    Gorty, gbav, Dogman & ido1957,
    ta for the responses. Very kind of you.
    Thus far I need to:
    *Ride the fader & lift the vocals at appropriate times - "Vocals im having a bit of a hard time hearing at times"
    *Give the guitar something to spread it across the image - "pan the guitar - a stereo chorus or echo"
    & obvioulsy some general ppanning - any recco's other than the chorused gtr?
    Cheers

    Love the guitar tone/crunch driving this tune.
    Cool bass part. On my system I think it actually sounds cool sticking out a bit on parts.
    Vox sound like they could a be little clearer, maybe EQ them away from the other instruments more or just raise the volume a bit.
    Really don't have anything else to add, sounds great to me. Fun song

    Thanx SnakeDog5050,
    The guitar sound is a Bruno Royal Artist (bridge pickup) played through an Ibanez Renometer with both the boost & high boost on into a Superbass 100 head & Etone box. It's pretty crunchy eh? The distortion is just cranking all three devices up.
    More work on seating the vox is required obvioulsy.
    Cheers & thanks

    I remember this! I like this one

    Overall, its a lil "trebly". The vox of course is like that on purpose, but it might be cool if everything else had a fuller sound except for the vox.

    Oh yeah, I remember the cello and sax were in the stairwell or something. They still sound a lil disjointed from the rest.

    Reminds me Of One night in Bangkok, very good song.
